Catalogue Note

“At this point, Rotella’s focus shifted again, this time to places of visual transit: the city walls, which provided him with the when and how of an up-to-the-minute, contemporary form of aesthetic communication. This was a revelation that slowly dawned on Rotella, who was aware that poster advertising and advertising in general, with their constant, reiterated messages, were opening up a new perspective."

Germano Celant: Mimmo Rotella, Milan 2007, p. 20
